that roger williams likes what everyone was thinking. he certainly did not. and he had a heated debate with quakers in particular about what they were thinking. this is 1727, roger williams has passed. but what it meant was he could disagree with the quakers, but he felt he had no right to cope them from -- to keep them from practicing that faith. and hammetit's is a man -- hammett is a man who is an example of you could even migrate from one faith to the next, and no one understood that more than roger williams. but one of the more important things at least to us is that this is published in 1727, the first year that printing is being done in rhode island. and it's printed here and sold by james franklin of newport. james franklin is the older brother of ben franklin. and it was to his brother james that ben franklin was apprenticed and learned the printing trade. so this is one of three books that survived and the only copy, i believe, that exists of john hammett's relation. as we move forward, we go into some of the more cultural aspects of rhode island's history in the 18th century

are actually related to roger williams, probably the most famous founder of rhode island. there were more than one for the colony of rhode island, so roncher williams gets the most attention, and these books are some of the reasons why. the first book we're going to look at today is called "the key into the language of america." and it was published in 1643. it's an original binding, so it is kept in this case. this book is 1643, and it is the first-ever dictionary of an indian language in english. this is an original printing printed by gregory dexter, so these are london imprints. these were not printed in the colony of rhode island. but this became an amazingly important book not just in the 17th century where it does show, in fact, roger williams' claim on the land that becomes rhode island. it shows his relationship and the closeness with which he has worked with the native peoples of rhode island such as the narragansett. but it also is used through the 17th, 18th, 9th and into the 20th century as one of the only dictionaries and keys to the language of algonquin-speaking people. so it r
